Best Lead Actress Odds

When it comes to Best Lead Actress, Glenn Close is the favorite for the job she did in The Wife. Close comes in at -650 odds. Lady Gaga made a name for herself singing but transferred to acting and has the second-best odds for her performance in A Star Is Born at +580. Melissa McCarthy, Olivia Colman and Yalitza Aparicio are the longshot nominees in this category.

Best Supporting Actress Odds

Regina King did a fantastic job in If Beale Street Could Talk, and she is the favorite to claim the Best Supporting Actress Oscar with odds of -300. It’s not a slam dunk, as Amy Adams’ performance in Vice has given her odds of +380 and Rachel Weisz’s work in The Favourite has her at +300 odds. This is one of the most competitive categories and it will be interesting to see which actress comes away with the Oscar.

Best Director Odds

Best Director is always a hotly-contested award and it features some worthy candidates this year. Alfonso Cuaron is the favorite for the job he did directing Roma. Cuaron is listed at -2000 odds so he is expected to claim the award. Spike Lee is listed at +700 for the job he did directing BlacKkKlansman, while Adam McKay is a bit of a longshot at +2000 odds for directing Vice.

Best Original Screenplay Odds

The Favourite is an aptly named movie as its odds are listed at -481 for Best Original Screenplay. Green Book and Roma are the top two contenders and while they are underdogs, the odds are low enough that they could certainly be in the conversation.

Our pick: Regina King at -300 to win Best Supporting Actress

There are a lot of heavy favorites to win Oscars this year, so the category that really draws the eyeballs is the hotly-contested race for Best Supporting Actress.
